news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: in the first national poll, governor romney now up by four points. you are right, jim, a lot of them were -- it's just sort of incredible. 49 to 45. and a lot of these as you said chris don't batter a lot. >> the battleground state polls are tightening but the majority still favor obama. >> there were over 300 -- now they are below 270. still ahead, but that's huge. >> stephanie: and some of the polling also a little over -- republican-leaning rasmussen also only had romney up by two points. rasmussen's monday poll conducted entirely after the debate, and partially following friday's encouraging jobs report, the two candidates were tied. gallop reported monday obama and romney were tied immediately following the debate. but then obama then again lead by five. >> well. >> stephanie: poll tracking average now shows obama in a three-point lead. >> maybe these people digested what romney was saying and realized it was all a load of crap -- >> stephanie: yeah including yesterday's foreign policy crap. >> people don't pay at
points. according to the latest poll. look to the far right of your screen. blue is obama, red is romney. look how close these two men have moved now, now six points apart. you look at this poll came out yesterday from michigan, there is just a three-point spread there. florida is too close to call. ohio said to be a toss-up. all this stuff is moving so fast. >> those are winnable states. new hampshire has a history of flipping in the end. it's a competitive state. obviously romney has deep relationships there having had a summer home there for a long time. governing in the neighboring state. obviously he needs, as i said on this show before, florida, ohio, you don't win the two you're not not game. virginia, north carolina, new hampshire, puts over the top at 270. bill: there was a pollster last night on "o'reilly factor", suffolk, university, said he is not polling anymore in florida, north carolina and virginia. he said romney has those states in the bag. do you agree with that. >> i wouldn't take anything for granted when you have less than four weeks to go. you have to get vote out
about, of course you can look good. >> democrat and obama obama spin there. mitt romney's gain in the polls following a strong showing. there seem to be something of a theme there, jim. i heard the word liar time and time again. is that what happens what happens? >> it's like a sports game. we were robbed. those were democratic partisans doing the talking. i think the story of that few days before the biden debate was the fuss in the media. andy sullivan was practically on the ledge looking down. jon stewart said obama doesn't want to win. and nora at media, she called it the media has stopped filling in the blank. obama campaign spinners can go up there and call romney a liar. media at least for that period before biden rallied them were saying, look, you are on your own pal. >> jon: but when an old hand like bob here is says, are you saying -- bob schieffer says isn't that kind a gift or punt this? >> you can assume he was so stunned by what he heard axelrod say. for he for a moment didn't know how he would follow up. what we're really seeing is two narratives here. one, we'r
on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador and three other americans in benghazi, libya, the consulate there, and the confusion surrounding the administration's explanation for what happened, the condemnation by some has given him a clear opening. take a look at what is happening throughout north africa and the middle east. he said that today. there is a lot of anti-american attitudes out there. he senses there is a moment now for him to take advantage and as you point out, brooke, he's going to have that foreign policy debate against president obama, that's the la
this poll this is a recent poll that shows more americans trusting obama over romney on foreign policy. do you think, though, that maybe, maybe team romney senses an opportunity, an opening here? >> yes, they definitely sense an opening as a result of what happened in benghazi, libya. i think the president has been popular as far as foreign policy is concerned as he got all the u.s. troops out of iraq, no more u.s. troops in iraq. americans are war weary, if you will, he's got a timeline to getting all u.s. troops out of afghanistan. but probably much more important than that, brooke, is that he managed to kill bin laden. that is something very, very popular. so i was a little surprised that romney went after the president in this speech today on iraq, because getting u.s. troops out of iraq has generally been popular, though romney did make valid points. the iraqi government, nuri al maliki is moving closer and closer to iran, it's facilitating iranian supplies of weapons to syria. this is not a good aftermath of all the years of struggle in iraq for sure. getting americans out of iraq th
. let's turn to how politicians are doing in the polls. a tight race following last week's debate. independents favor romney, in "washington times" -- and the "washington times" looks at areas of interest to registered voters and likely voters. not only did they look at the debate but they talked-about who would do a better job on a variety of issues. this includes topics like foreign affairs, jobs and the economy, and national security. this is another poll from s zogby and the "washington times ." you can see these numbers broken down by the pew research center. it shows how romney is pulling even. registered voters, the numbers a little different from likely voters. our question this morning is whether or not political spouses affect your vote. let's go to william at from florida on our democratic line. caller: good morning, everybody. much they don't do that for the ticket, but they do have an effect on the people when they talk. one thing about -- between michelle obama and mitt romney's wife was she has a sense of entitlement and more or less she was kind of disturbed about
